Vegetable Linguine

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dividend

This is one of my favorite recipes from college. Even my meat-and-potatoes boyfriend likes this - he actually requests it for dinner. Don't be scared off by the number of ingredients and steps. This really only takes a little longer then boiling the pasta.

Pretty good stuff! My aspiring vegetarian daughter loved this meal. I took mplsgirls advice and added the juice of one lemon -- a perfect compliment! The only thing I might have done differently was to micro the veggies longer, as our family prefers veggies just a tad softer.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Steam the broccoli, zucchini, and asparagus until tender. (I do this in the microwave by putting them in a large glass bowl with ~ 1/4 cup of water, covering with plastic wrap, and cooking for about 5 minutes on high.).
  2. Cook the linguine according to package directions in plenty of boiling, salted water, and drain.
  3. While the linguine is cooking:.
  4. In a very large saucepan, sauté the garlic and tomatoes in the olive oil for 2 minutes over medium heat.
  5. Stir in the basil and mushrooms, and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Add the butter and cook until melted.
  8. Add the milk and cheese; blend well.
  9. Raise the heat and let the mixture reduce by about one third.
  10. Add the linguine and steamed vegetables; toss to combine.
